IAF objects to Anil Kapoor’s costume in AK vs AK trailer, actor issues clarification.



After raising objections against Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl and taking Dharma Productions to court, the Indian Air Force has expressed objections against another one of Netflix’s movies, AK vs AK. The IAF is miffed at how Anil Kapoor ‘inaccurately’ wore the Air Force uniform in the movie, while using ‘inappropriate’ language.


In the trailer, Anil is seen shooting for a film while wearing an Air Force officer’s costume. He then meets Anurag Kashyap, who tells him that he has just 10 hours to save his daughter Sonam Kapoor. Anil jumps through several hurdles, fights with Anurag and uses some swear words, while trying to find Sonam. The IAF has tweeted about the film, asking for the scenes to be removed.

“The IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned & the language used is inappropriate. This does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India. The related scenes need to be withdrawn,” they wrote.
